TOKYO -- Japanese truck maker Hino Motors, a unit of Toyota Motor, said on Tuesday that it has been falsifying data related to engine emissions and fuel performance for a longer period of time and on more models than previously admitted, making it more difficult for the company to rebuild its management and restore credibility.

The company has made public a report by a special investigative committee composed of outside lawyers who found additional instances of fraud.
